systemd: Configuration file … is marked executable. Please remove executable permission bits. Proceeding anyway.

Posted 22 February, 2016

Sometimes you just need /var/log/messages only showing relevant errors, I already found out how to separate the logging in files; but this one you can’t filter out; Its a permission “bug” in the distro (Centos 7.2). I got it for these two, but there are more on the open.

systemd: Configuration file /usr/lib/systemd/system/ebtables.service is marked executable. Please remove executable permission bits. Proceeding anyway.
systemd: Configuration file /usr/lib/systemd/system/wpa_supplicant.service is marked executable. Please remove executable permission bits. Proceeding anyway.

Just change the permission to 0644 from the original 0755 :

chmod 0644 /usr/lib/systemd/system/wpa_supplicant.service
chmod 0644 /usr/lib/systemd/system/ebtables.service

Another line squished !
